Here’s That Fan-Made Unofficial Credit Sequence For “X-Men: First Class”

Yeah, I know, this has been everywhere by now, but, geez, this is good, an unofficial 1960’s Saul Bass-style credit sequence for “X-Men: First Class” made by Joe D!, so in case you haven’t seen it, here you go:

It was inspired by a contest Super Punch held for a redesign for the movie’s poster; note that the music is the cartoon version theme, reimagined, and the graphics fit the movie’s time period. My only quibble is that a REAL 1960’s credit sequence would put the title at or near the beginning (that ending-with-the-title thing is a more recent development, along with the style where you save the full credits until the end of the movie). But this is still pretty excellent.

HT: Too many to remember, but the latest I saw was New York Magazine’s Vulture, which in turn credits Patton Oswalt’s Twitter post, so let’s give them some credit.

    That was astonishing, if for no other reason than the eerie, orchestral version of the classic cartoon theme song.
